Match system boot disc to Time Machine system before restore
Authored by: scoDubblT on Apr 17, '10 05:02:58AM

Thanks for the tips on this. I had the exact problem mentioned here. Booted from a OS X 10.5 install disc and started TimeMachine restore after being told by AppleCare senior tech that 10.5 disc could restore a 10.6.3 TimeMachine backup. Restore took over 8 hours using Ethernet. Rebooted and got KP Reboot message. Found this post, found my Snow Leopard disc (that was the hard part). I then booted from Snow Leopard disc, did the restore from TM via Ethernet. Restore took 3 hours and worked flawlessly. Thanks again for the post. Too bad Apple doesn't have the knowledge that the user community does. That being said, I would like to praise AppleCare. Started down this path because HDD was clicking and sometimes not booting. Took it in to Apple Store, they not only swapped out the HDD, but replaced the case (MacBook 18 months old) which was cracking a tiny bit, as well as the keyboard. No questions asked, no additional cost, 1 day turn around.
